AASW Life Member Nominations

About AASW Life Membership

Thanks to the contributions of so many outstanding members, during the past 75 years the AASW has grown from a fledgling association of 400 members, to be the peak professional body for social workers across Australia with more than 15,000 Members.

Throughout the AASW’s amazing journey there have been some extraordinary Members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and made significant and sustained contributions to the AASW and the social work profession.

Since its inception, 39 distinguished Members from across the Social Work profession have been bestowed with prestigious AASW Life Memberships.

It is a wonderful tradition that we are proud to continue, to acknowledge outstanding AASW Members that are very worthy of recognition, doing exceptional work and making remarkable contributions without acknowledgement.
